Wanna host your own eco friendly puppy paw-ty? Look no further than this Boho “bluey inspired” paw-ty!
You may have noticed one of the latest party trends for littlies that is HUGE this year is a Bluey inspired theme!
Bluey is the main character of the popular ABC kids show “Bluey” and has won the hearts of kids and parents alike!
I’ll show you how I threw Rocco, a sweet boho “Bluey” inspired puppy paw-ty for his 2nd Birthday and kept it eco friendly and plastic-free with reusable party decorations throughout!
The Invitation, Welcome sign, Cake topper, Milk bottle tags & Colouring-in booklets
The Invite, Welcome sign, Cake topper, Milk bottle tags & Colouring in booklets were created and customised by Catherines Personalised prints! Blues and nudes were used to keep them matching and they were sent out digitally to minimise waste!
The most sustainable solution for the welcome sign was to print on recycled paper and add it to a picture frame. A wooden easel was used to prop it up!
The cake topper was attached to wooden skewers and looked fantastic on top of the cake!
Milk bottle labels were tied on with blue string and The colouring in booklets were printed and delivered which saved so much time! Kids of all ages enjoy colouring in at parties so these were a hit!

The Cake and Macarons
A blue buttercream cake adorned with silver leaf was created by Sugar Whipped Cakes to go with the blues, beige and whites colour palette!
We chose Blueberry and Vanilla swirl and had blue melt-in-your-mouth macarons to match which were delicious! Take a look at Sugar Whipped Cakes and what they have to offer here https://partyora.com/directory/business-listing/cakes-desserts/sugar-whipped-cakes/
Don’t forget the candles!
Two handmade beeswax candles were added to the cake for Roccos Second Birthday! These candles come in a pack of 10 and best of all, they’re super safe if any drips onto the cake! View our range of candles here https://partyora.com/product-category/eco-party-products/party-supplies/birthday-candles/
Decorations, Pass the parcel, napkins, Fabric Bunting, Favour bags & Gift bags set
Our design team created these Fabric reusables including a large blues bunting, mini bluey bunting, 10 lolly bags, a Fabric Pass the parcel set and children’s napkins!
The 10 layer pass the parcel was filled with wooden puzzles, foil-wrapped chocolates and more for kids to play, this took seconds to fill and best of all is reusable!
We used the large Blues fabric bunting above the Picnic pallet tables and a mini “Bluey” Bunting above the cake table They are available here https://partyora.com/shop/blues-fabric-bunting/
This rainbow tissue paper eco confetti was scattered on the tables, inside the pinata and thrown in the air whilst the photographers worked their magic! Fully home compostable and water-soluble, this eco confetti is the best way to create that party atmosphere and best of all, It’s plastic-free!

Picnic Pallet Tables, Rugs, Cushions
The Picnic Pallet tables that were hired from Little Teepee Sleepover Parties and gave this Party that picnic look and feel we were after! The kids sat around the tables on cushions and absolutely loved them! View more of their services here https://partyora.com/directory/business-listing/party-hire/lil-teepee-asleep-over-parties/
This “Bluey” inspired Blue dog ears headband was handmade by Schooza! After the party is over, these can be reused for book-week or just playing dress-ups! You can view the Schooza range of party accessories and dress-ups here
The Grazing Boxes
There were 3 small Kids Grazing boxes and 1 XL Grazing box created by Mad Hatters Platters for the adults to feast on whilst the sausages were on the BBQ. A selection of cold meats, cheeses, olives, vegetables, fruit, & crackers were just a few of the items stacked into these wonderfully presented boxes and these boxes were generous!
The Preserved Florals
The Local florist Eden Flower Studio was ready to help with the preserved florals for this boho bash and the staff gave me some useful advice on grouping the bunches which were displayed in Wine Decanters!
These looked stunning on the tables and gave that boho vibe! Whilst the process of preserving flowers may not be considered eco friendly, what I love is that they are truly an ever bloom if taken care of properly! View more from Eden Flower studio here https://edenflowerstudio.com.au/
Timber Happy Birthday Sign
Our favourite reusable Happy Birthday sign by Honeycomb Living was used to decorate the cake table and this time we lay it down for something different! In the past we have used it on the wall, on props, on the table edge, there are so many options!
What we love most about it is that it can be used for every single family member or lent to a friend!

The Puppy Plasters
Our little guests were treated to some Bluey Inspired Puppy Plasters which were hand poured by PM Plaster Craft!
Rocco had us giggling as he took a pencil to his plaster and the other kids were trying their best to get the colours of their favourite characters just right! These can be set up as an activity on the day and double up as the take-home favour!
The moment Rocco saw his favourite character “FOR REAL LIFE” was definitely a highlight of the day.
His little face lit up and he enjoyed talking to, and dancing with Bluey!
Hiring a Mascot is a great way to bring that extra magic to their day and keep them entertained! This and many other character mascots can be Hired from My Little Sweet Tooth!

The Paw Pinata
Only a Paw shaped pinata for this Paw-ty would do and I was so pleased with how it turned out! This was made with a cardboard box, crepe paper, glue and rope. Once it was finished, it was filled with foil-wrapped coins and some lollies the grandparents bring over that we end up with too many of !
It can also be filled with little notes or jokes written on paper, origami or coins (If the kids are older!) For more Pinata tips click here
